NXP and Amazon Web Services Launch Cooperation in IoT

NXP Semiconductors N.V.(NASDAQ:NXPI) today announced it is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS), to successfully complete the integration of Amazon Greengrass on its Layerscape Intelligent Gateway platform. Amazon Greengrass is a software that extends AWS Cloud capabilities to local devices, making it possible for them to collect and analyze data closer to the source of information, while also securely communicating with each other on local networks. This integration provides efficient security support for edge computing and Internet-of-Things (IoT) cloud interactions, enabling agile business delivery and world-class secure IoT access for homes, companies and other business environments. In the future, the two companies will explore further areas of cooperation in edge computing and cloud platforms, ranging from product R&D, business development and market promotion, all aiming to ensure IoT data security through collaborative innovation. The NXP Intelligent Gateway Platform uses the company’s QorIQ Layerscape processor architecture. In addition to advanced edge computing power and security performance, the processor family can seamlessly extend AWS Cloud capabilities to the device side, processing data collected by Internet users in local real-time, enabling it to be simultaneously managed, analyzed and stored permanently in the cloud. Layerscape series processors use industry-leading small size, low power consumption and high performance 64-bit ARMv8 architecture. The product line includes single-core, dual-core, quad-core, and eight-core System-on-a-Chips (SoCs). This series of processors also integrates a powerful network, security, storage and TSN hardware acceleration engine and programmable application interface. With its superior combination of high-performance and low-power usage, Layerscape processors have become the preferred platform for SDN/NFV edge computing nodes, as well as enterprise, industrial and home-grade intelligent gateway devices.”
